I am a premed student focusing in the area of psychiatry, a dancer (I have done ballet softshoe and pointe, tap, hip hop, jazz, modern and belly dance), a poet, a singer, and an avid yogi. I currently hold two degrees: a B.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in Sociology and am in undergraduate school finishing up a few premed courses. I am also working towards a yoga teaching certification, training to compete in practical pistol shooting, and crosstraining in karate, judo and hapkido. Regardless of how busy this makes me art has continued to remain a large part of my life, particularly writing poetry, singing and exploring modeling.
Right now I am working on a project which I hope to turn into a book one day. I am trying to portray what it is like to have certain psychiatric disorders using myself as a model. So far I have done shoots for Depersonalization Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and Substance Abuse. I would like to do many more and if you are a photographer who is interested in this project please contact me. I have many ideas for other shoots that I don't have room to write out here and I'd be interested in others' ideas for this project as well.
In addition to this project I am interested in exploring all types of modeling, be it glamor, artistic nudes, fetish, alternative or anything in between. I am most interested in modeling as a form of collaborative art between the model and photographer and all others who are involved. My rates are negotiable depending on the project. I rarely do TFP shoots and am highly selective when I choose to do so unless it is related to my psychiatric project.
I am okay with nudity and fetish shoots so long as they are done tastefully and I am allowed an escort of my choosing during the shoot. I also require a couple of references if you are a new photographer I have not shot with yet.
I am based in Atlanta, GA and I am not opposed to travel so long as my schedule permits and I am adequately compensated. However traveling outside of the state of Georgia is a bit unlikely for me at this time due to school and other engagements. I have three small tattoos and a few scars that can be covered up with makeup and/or retouched if necessary. I also have multiple piercings but am able to take these out if needed.
I just got a few new wigs: a pink and white gothic lolita wig, blonde pinup wig with victory rolls, blue cyber dreads and a long black wig on their way in the mail. The lolita wig is the only one I've had a chance to model in so far and you can find pics of it here: http://manicdelight.deviantart.com/gallery/48587897
I am very passionate, driven and ambitious but I also know how to let my hair down and have fun. I genuinely enjoy modeling and would love to find more talented people I can work with.
